    Wbbl ︳03

    The tournament started yesterday with a bang.

    Sydney Thunder were the first team to reach 200 in the tournamenets history and the Renegades were on track to reach the target before a catch was given out by the third umpire in very debatable circumstances meant that Jess Duffin(Cameron)was out which changed the game.

    I didnt see much of the Sixers game, but Ash Gardner was amazing, fastest ever 100 and the highest ever team score lasted like 5 hours as Sixers made 242. The two Sydney teams play against one another today.

    Overall I actually really like this tournament. there is a great mix of International players, Aussie stars and interesting players like your Molineux and Stalenburgs who are close to Aussie selection.

    Really sad I missed these games. Gardner was absolutely brutal. Perry was her usual brilliant self as well.

    I really like the WBBL. It's a great way of promoting the women's game and is every bit as good as the men's game as a spectacle.

    You can probably rewatch it online Stephen.

    Scorchers vs Heat on right now. Kimmince is an interesting player, not sure how she made the Aussie team.

    So many top-class players from all around the world, it's great.

    Wow, the Scorchers did well to get to 190! When I was watching earlier they were three down for not many.

    Sciver and Brunt partnership was similar to Haynes and Stalenburg yesterday.

    Attapattu is very classy with the bat. Not sold on her bowling, sooo slow.

    The game's been over for a fair while now, but this has been some fantastic hitting from Kimmince.

    Thats probably how she made the Aussie side. She won me my only bet of the game, highest runscorer of the game to play for the Heat.

    Can we address the murder that happened yesterday? Think we can finally laugh in retrospect.

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    Nah most of it was going beyond the fence, just solid hitting and easy runs behind the wicket.

    Yeah aye, notice that the WBBL seem to get better quality overseas internationals (comparatively) than the BBL. I'm guessing the WBBL is the only professional women's T20 league?

    Nup; Gardner and Perry were generally clearing the fence. Outfield was lightning quick and it is NSO after all.

    I didn't think it looked roped in much more than it would be for a men's game, really.

    KSL exists as well, but yeah -- plus the women's schedules are far less full than the men.

    I mean even the BCCI have let a player participate in the WBBL

    I was gonna make a combined BBL/WBBL thread and put both league's fixtures in the OP. How does that sound? (obviously this thread can just have the thread title changed and NUFAN can edit in the fixtures)

    This is pretty amazing: after 2 overs yesterday, Perry was on 4 and Gardner on 5. After almost 10 overs, Perry was on 12 and Gardner was on 80.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?
